Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

[g1]

A PhD research fellowship is offered in the Department of Computer
and Information Science (IDI), of the Faculty of Information
Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering (IME), at the
Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).

The planned research will address challenges related to one of the two main areas specified below.

• Safety analysis based on the requirements available in the
early software development activities. Possible research areas could be
for instance specification of requirements in a way that is suitable
for safety analysis, software safety analysis in agile projects or
safety analysis based on UML diagrams, e.g. use cases or sequence
diagrams.

• The application of methods from human reliability analysis
(HRA) on software development. How can methods and experience from HRA
help us to improve the software development processes?

It is, however, possible for the applicant to suggest other related
areas of research but the suggested research area must be strongly
related to the advisor’s research interests.

Relevant education as Master in Computer Science, Master in Software
Engineering or equivalent is required. Applicants must satisfy the
formal requirements for admission to the PhD studies at NTNU. See
http://www.ime.ntnu.no/Dr.gradsstudier/ for detailed information on the
PhD programs administrated by IME.
